Access to the cabin is by float plane. It is about a 30-minute flight from Juneau. In fall, winter, and early spring, the cabin may be inaccessible due to frozen lake surface (float planes cannot land). The lake is normally ice free from mid-May through November. Refer to USGS topographic map Sitka D-2, D-3. Click here for information about reaching Forest Service Cabins.

Basic Info
Total Sites:
Florence Lake offers fishing for rainbow trout, Dolly Varden and northern pike. A small fishing boat with oars is provided at the cabin, however, guests need to bring their own life jackets and possibly, a small outboard (10-horsepower) motor.

Hikers may enjoy traversing a primitive 1.2-mile trail at the west end of the lake. The trail leads to a saltwater beach. Beachcombers may find Japanese fishing floats, shells, bottles, and other wave-swept treasures from the open ocean.
